Look at John Wick. NOBODY saw that preview and said “Oh my God, I gotta go see the new Keanu movie!!!” But you sit down for two hours, and damnit, that movie entertains the hell outta ya. The man rampaged NYC for 3 days, fired 947,000 bullets, we saw 1 single cop the entire film, that cop, knocked on his front door, saw a body, and turned and went home.
But we all love that film.
Man I saw the trailer and was hyped. The John Wick thread people was hyped. Movie didn't let me down. My boy disappointed me tho by saying he love the movie until the VERY end. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The reason I think we didn't see any cops is because the rumor that John Wick was back in town and nobody wanted that trouble especially if he was on revenge kick. You saw how quick Kevin Nash took that "Take off for the night" option?
